Eddie is fantastic! Super friendly and knowledgeable. Great way to see the sites on the Freedom Trail, while getting a jog in. The pace is totally manageable, especially given that there are lots of stops along the way. Wear warm clothes if you're going in...More

The Freedom Trail Run is a unique fusion of physical activity and historic tour taken through Boston. It is both invigorating and interesting. I'd go again and would recommend going alone or in a group.

We had a great time running through the streets of Boston with Eddie O'Connor. It was entertaining and informative for children and adults. It felt great to hit that 294th step at the top of the Bunker Hill Monument!

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have

I will be going to Boston with my 10 yr old son in September. We have both run 5k's before. Would the tour be appropriate/interesting/fun for a 10 yr old boy? How engaging are the guides? My son is fairly interested in history. Thanks.

Your son will LOVE our run! Our guides are extremely engaging!
Hi, I am planning a visit with my boyfriend this September - he runs using running blades (injured veteren) - he is a para-triathlete and a seriously quick runner but I wanted to find out if this tour would be suitable for him? Might struggle with running on uneven ground/stairs.

Hi - There are a few cobblestone streets and several staircases on the course, but if he's a triathlete he'll definitely be fine! We look forward to running with both of you! ~ Eddie
